The additional carbon value would reflect the true cost of operating high-emitting plants, resulting in more clean energy sources being dispatched to the grid based on their lower true cost.
Eco's 'Cut Once Concept' is founded on sustainable principles relating to the defense of harvested timber, and the potential carbon value associated with protecting lumber from 'cradle to cradle' via ECOB's eco-friendly Red Shield coatings.
Yet, the American people were completely left in the dark when this new carbon value was calculated.
3 m layer at the four sites sampled ranged from 113 to 131% of the measured total carbon value (Table 2), indicating that this technique may not have been accurate enough to enable the detection of relatively small treatment differences.
A fully implemented moratorium on pulping forests with high conservation and high carbon value would have a profound impact on Indonesia's biodiversity, as well as on Indonesia's carbon emissions.
2] ($48/tC) as valued in the European Climate Exchange (Cozijnsen 2012) a several year average could contribute $24 (bone dry equivalent) toward the cost of collecting wood if the markets were not otherwise restricted, thus monetizing the value into products proportional to their carbon value, thereby offsetting about half of the cost of delivering forest residuals.
